I'm Still Here & Exhausted...

Most of you already know why I have been non-existent here on my personal blog lately, if not you can read about all I have been doing the last few weeks on the new blog I am doing for my sweet little nephew here who is currently fighting for his life, read more about how it all started here.  So between blogging updates for him and emotionally dealing with that and life in general, I just started feeling really down and sad dealing with everything, so I really decided I needed to just get back into my daily routine with my family again so that they are all not suffering as well.  We have done that by:

  • Returning back to do the fun Summer Movie Program, so we saw this today.
  • Back to serving in my church calling as Young Women's President in my ward and for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Which keeps me very busy. Sunday lessons and classes. Tuesday activities (we watched a movie they made from Girls Camp this week, and made a poster, and ate Ice Cream). AND preparing for our 30 mile bike ride from Corona to the Beach THIS Saturday! Whew! It is exhausting, but I LOVE it!!!  These girls are some of my "besties" that means Best Friends (yep, totally trying to stay cool)!
  • Walking & hanging out with my new preschool friends.  I usually walk Tues. & Thurs. with a few mom's I met through Ella's preschool. It has been a way to keep me exercising and have fun at the same time. I haven't started back until this week, since our vacation and everything with my nephew has happened, so it feels "normal" reconnecting with them again.
  • Ella also has swim lessons everyday, M-Th. Since Danny & Sarah have a pool at their house, we are really trying to get the kids swimming, and Ella absolutely LOVES IT. Can you tell?
So if you have read it all, you can see I am very busy and pretty darn exhausted, but hanging in there and trying to get back into the swing of things, which helps my emotional state.

I am also wondering WHAT HAPPENED TO SUMMER??  My eldest BABY is starting kindergarten this year, and on AUGUST 11th!!!! That seems crazy to me, more anxiety producing posts about that later.


  1. I'm so glad you are back to your routine and I forgot Ella starts school sooo soon! I love you!

  2. Wow, you ARE busy, could you imagine if you were still working? haha! Glad you are able to get back into your daily routine. Still praying for Will and for the Todd family. Love all of you guys!

  3. Ive been following little Wills updates you post since you first posted about his illness. I don't even know the little kid, but my heart goes out to Dan and Sarah and your whole family! I put wills name in the temple last time I went (as Im sure MANY other people have done). Im glad you and your little family are getting back into a routine. Take care!!!!
